Living on the Gulf coast in a popular tourist area has lots of good points, but there's also elements of it that I hate, or at least creep me out.
Or maybe it doesn't?
We have lots of tourists, seasonal residents, and the year rounders who have a love/hate relationship with the temporary residents. Even I feel that way about them!
I've never really described myself, and I think if I do what I'm going to delve into later on in this journal might make more sense?
I'm a few inches short of being six feet tall, have brown eyes and brown hair that's never more than a quarter inch long, and look like a perfect mix of my parents who are also tall and thin. I'm allergic to all grains and have been on a low carb diet my whole life, and so has my family so I wouldn't feel weird about what I can't eat. As a good result of that I'm very muscular, not bulky but I look like I work out all the time.
Actually, I do. I'm a bit hyper and instead of my parents drugging me I got into sports to burn off some energy, and that made a big difference. Except that I have this burning need to exercise all the time. I run to school, unless the weather's bad. I run at recess after I eat my lunch (I bet I smell good after that!). I run home after school if I can. At home I do a high rep workout with pullups, pushups, wall squats, and ab exercises every other day. At 118 pounds I'm a bit underweight, but that doesn't bother me. I really don't want to bulk up either.
Except for when I have on tight Under Armour gear, I wear shirts a size bigger and always wear cargo shorts, which hides my skinniness better than anything else and is super comfortable.
When the weather's good and I'm outside I see no point of wearing a shirt, and that's a good idea when I'm running to school anyway, right? But there's a downfall to be shirtless most of the time, or maybe it isn't.
I get lots of attention from other guys, especially older ones. By older I mean usually guys old enough to be my father, but high school and college age ones have noticed me too. And made offers. And got a bit too aggressive with me.
I have a feeling people will say this should be taken as a compliment, but is it complimentary when a hairy guy old enough to be your grandfather, who reeks with cigarette smoke wants you to have "fun" with him at a hotel?
I think a point will also be made that if I'm running around halfway naked I then should expect this? Why would it surprise me? I should love it!
This will disappoint some of you, but I've taken up some of these offers. I'm not sure I'm ready to write about that yet, but I think that will make for an interesting journal? Or a scary one?
I like writing on here. This is really the only place where I can be myself, so it is my Oasis.
